Data and Reports
Oakland City University Releases an Annual Report each November.
The Department of Institutional Research (IR) collects, organizes, analyzes, and publishes data about many aspects of the operation of OCU, such as admissions and enrollment, student demographics and performance, retention and graduations rates, student life, curriculum, faculty and staff qualifications, financial aid and college expenses, athletics, facilities and resources, and alumni relations.
The Department prepares reports and surveys required by governmental bodies and accrediting agencies, including the Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Schools, and the NCAA.
IR also responds to requests from organizations that publish guides to colleges and universities, such as US News and World Report, Peterson’s, the College Board, the Council of Graduate Schools, and the Princeton Review. IR also provides reports as requested by internal offices and departments of the University and by external constituencies and stakeholders.
